I have been using Mitsui Golds and Silvers for almost 15 years now and have had only a handful of problems.

I suggest that if you are storing your CDs in fairly decent conditions without broad differences in temp and humidity, your disks, no matter how cheap should last for an acceptble period of time. I would also recommend performing random data checks at least once a year on the older disks to ensure there has been no data corruption.

Here is a link to the Optical Storage organization for more information.
